Hear about the history of Goldman Sachs, and how it’s managed to survive the financial crisis so far – even as other powerhouses like Lehman Brothers have flopped. Charles Ellis is author of The Partnership.
Host Leonard Lopate lets you in on the best conversations with writers, actors, ex-presidents, dancers, scientists, comedians, historians, grammarians, curators, filmmakers, and do-it-yourself experts.
On today’s show we’ll explore the re-emergence of school segregation 60 years after the Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education. Sylvia Jukes Morris talks about the influence of politician and playwright Clare Boothe Luce. We'll find out about a legal battle over a Navy submarine detection system that uses high-intensity underwater sound—and drives whales to strand themselves on beaches. And, why golf is catching on in China and how it’s changing Chinese culture.
